-- GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The image of Randall Cobb walking to the locker room with a shoulder injury was about the worst imaginable scenario on Saturday for the Green Bay Packers, who six days earlier lost receiver Jordy Nelson to a season-ending knee injury.
Cobb, who took over for Nelson as the Packers' No. 1 receiver, was injured on the Packers' third play from scrimmage in Saturday's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He appeared to land on his right side while attempting to catch a pass from quarterback Brett Hundley along the sideline.
Cobb was initially examined in the bench area by team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie. Shortly thereafter, he was taken to the Lambeau Field locker room for further examination.
Last season, Cobb caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns. Those numbers were second on the team to Nelson, who had 98 catches for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Cobb signed a four-year, $40 million contract in March shortly before he would have hit free agency.
Coach Mike McCarthy held quarterback Aaron Rodgers out of the game in large part because three of his starting offensive linemen were out with injuries.
